Our Great Guy, Our German Shepherd, Duke
by Judith Clauss
This is in memorium to an incredible dog. We rescued him at the age of 1 1/2 years -- a wild, hyper, totally untrained dog full of love.
He broke my leg (knocking me down) the first week we had him. However socialization progressed with him on a leash next to me with leg propped up on the couch.
My husband had raised and showed Great Danes for years, but never owned or really even spent any time with a Shepherd. I had previously owned (and showed minimally German Shepherds in obedience and have always loved the breed).
We lost our great guy in December after many wonderful years. We have just purchased a new GSD puppy to love who will be ready to come home the first week of February. Thanks for considering our great boy. Thanks for your wonderful site.Total German Shepherd
